Recommended to buy a half size smaller, which I did. But they still came out much too long, so I returned and exchanged for a further half size down. These were still a half size too long, but I have reached the smallest size (8). Its more confusing in that sizing for orders is US although a conversion chart is provided. The size 8's I now have may just be OK, but still feel too long. It's cost an extra £7,00 in return postage. The moral is, don't buy shoes online or at least don't buy these unless you're happy to spend time and money exchanging them once or twice. The style is great and I expect they're comfortable if you get the size right.
